I know there are a few frame builders on here.
I have a steel mtb frame which is made of high end true temper platinum ox tubing (like 853). I would to have the chain and seat stay bridges removed and either :
- new ones installed closer to bb shell/further up the seat stays
- or replaced with a nice flat plate on both chain and seat stays, shaped to bb chain stay junction.
Either way it will enable more tyre clearance on the frame.
Spoken to a few roadie frame builders and they don't seem to know much about the true temper tubing and only give me patchy info.
Is it possible and how much would this type of minor work cost?
Can anybody help?
